Whether you’re binging on Marvel’s The Defenders on Netflix or anxiously awaiting Thor: Ragnarok — you might be one of the optimists looking forward to Marvel’s Inhuman’s — either way, there’s no doubt that Marvel is successfully entering all aspects of entertainment. And from the looks of early Twitter reactions, Hulu’s Runaways could be a worthy addition to the long list.
There’s still a few months to go before the series hits, but Hulu invited select members of the press and screened the first two episodes. The streaming service is hoping to build word-of-mouth and judging from the reactions, that was probably a good idea.
Check out the reactions below:

So, I’ve seen the first two #Runaways episodes – just had to check it was okay to say. And guys? I loved them. Beyond words.

REACTION: Marvel’s #TheRunaways is a great teenage mystery show much like CW’s Riverdale. Gert is hands down going to be everyones favorite

I’ve seen the first episode of Hulu’s #Runaways and there are some significant changes but the spirit of the comic is alive and well

Though spoilers weren’t exactly given, the tweet in regards to the second episode is pretty telling. The idea of the first two episodes handling the same plot from two different perspectives is interesting to say the least.
What do you make of the reactions though? Lets us know if these tweets have you more hyped for Marvel’s Runaways!

Here’s the official synopsis:
